Wow! What happens is: I plug in my wi-fi modem or whatever it is and open my computer. The modem takes a couple minutes to initialize and in the meantime the computer doesn't see it, so it asks if i want to join something else. I say 'no' a few times until mine is available then I have to click on it and I'm in business. OR I don't open my computer until the modem if up and running and when I wake the Mac up it just connects, no trouble.
I think I'd rather just do the latter (close the lid for a second) than get into such a daunting effort as listed above! Or is what I am describing evidence of something to be concerned about?
It seems as though the programis is writen for two options. Preferred Network is available or not. If yes, connect. If no, list all found and wait for instructions. Once asking for instructions it doesn't check if its preferred or not.
Somehow I don't get a sense that there is a glitch that the above would fix. Just the usual round me not fitting into the square hole with my part time modem.
Thanks for all the effort. Do let me know, please, if there is some reason I should do the troubleshooting.
